Bowman Cellars was founded in 2013 by a ﬁfth generation northern California family, the Bowman’s. Alexander Bowman, the youngest member, has brought his wine industry family together to produce wines that express a sense a place from the stunning appellations in which they reside.
Alex grew up making wine with his father Doug from fruit off their Sauvignon Blanc vineyard in west Santa Rosa, as well as Zinfandel from their vineyard in Mountain Ranch, located in the Sierra Foothills. Alex and Doug, believe in growing their crops with a soft human touch, so they don’t interfere with the way of nature and sourcing their fruit from local farmers that have the same integrity and style as their own.
Bowman Cellars ofﬁcially launched in Spring of 2017, with a growing wine club and blossoming wholesale accounts, thanks to Alex’s aunt Lisa Crean Bowman who had recently retired after 25 years as Director of Sales from Frogs Leap, the next step was a tasting room. February 1st, 2018 Bowman Cellars opened the doors of their ﬁrst tasting room in the town of Graton.
At Bowman, we believe in our wines and know that they pair best with family, friends and locally sourced food.
“My wife Katie and I have known each other for 10 years and have been married since 2014, both working separately; me at my fathers company Bowman Electric and her at her grandparents business, Andy’s Produce Market in Sebastopol. Creating Bowman Cellars gives us the ability to follow our passion for great wines, amazing food, and all that living in wine country has to offer. Bowman Cellars allows both of our families a space to come together and open our doors to our friends, neighbors and visitors to share what we love so much – and we look forward to becoming the new generation of wine tasting”
